Re: addition fondation info
if you have never done this type of renovation yourself i STRONGLY advise you not to try and do it yourself. foundations for additions are best left to professionals. i am a licensed carpenter and have spent most of my career specializing in the renovation sector. ive done over 70 additions and i still scratch my head time to time when doing the ground work for additions.
also, first draw up a sketch of what you want to do to the house plus a floor plan. from there hire a architect to draw up an actual set of plans.. from there you can price up what you want to do and get permits to put an addition on. the drawings must be done to apply for a permit. the city will look at your plans and say yes or no to what you want to do and can advise you on what may need to be revised before going ahead with it
